Metroid 

released on Aug 06, 1986

It's you against the evil Mother Brain in the thrilling battle of Metroid! You're inside the fortress planet Zebes. The planet of endless secret passageways where the Metroid are multiplying. Left alone the Metroid are harmless. But in the wrong hands they could destroy the galaxy. It's up to you to prevent the Mother Brain that controls Zebes from using the Metroid for evil purposes. But that won't be easy. You'll have to use your spacesuit to absorb valuable energy for your search to gain the use of power items like the Ice Beam, Wave Beam, High Jump Boots and Varia. If you survive, it will be you and your acquired powers against the Mother Brain.

Really bland and slow but it's greatly improved upon, only bother with it if you really care to see the start of the series


I will forever appreciate this game's legacy, being one of the first games I actually played in my early teen years on virtual console, as well as the pseudo-Alien atmosphere it tries to capture which it does decently as you could expect of this time period.

It even has neat map design, with the small screen size forcing mental maps to be bigger and some stuff needing to be written down to really capture the size of it all.

It is fucking awful to play. So bad, so slow, so so so slow. So actually terrible and uninteresting. For the love of god keep it in the museum.


Playing this game after playing Super Metroid is weird. It also rules.
